“the only band to have been asked back 3 times consecutively – because they’re so good!” Swaledale Festival
Champions of the standing ovation, The Hut People are rapidly gaining more and more of a reputation as one of the hottest & most entertaining Folk/World acts touring today.
Taking the audience on a voyage across the globe with their varied material, they perform a hugely engaging, entertaining and truly unique blend of home-grown tunes mixed with British, Nordic and European folk music, perfectly formed & embellished with the driving accordion and a dazzling array of exotic percussion.
Accordionist Sam Pirt & Percussionist Gary Hammond both have extensive backgrounds in music - having been part of and performed alongside legendary acts such as The Beautiful South, Nina Simone, The Dubliners & Sharon Shannon, their playing is still very much in high demand.
Great music & virtuosity aside, a show from The Hut People is overflowing with humour, spontaneity and a 100% commitment to their getting-the-crowd-involved ethos. Don’t miss them.
“…music that's in turn dramatic, joyous and hypnotically beguiling, and which stays with you long after the album has finished playing" R2 “…an enormous ebullience, an absolutely hyper off-the-scale level of sweaty hi-energy, and total (ok, 200%) commitment…. what an impression they made…a very high ‘wow’ factor…” NETRHYTHMS
